Continuing the occasional effort to look outside the wildflower box, here's a two-fer. Moss and pixie or elf cups. Or just looking at the cups, fungus and algae. Lichens are of course fungus growing with intertwined algae and/or bacteria. The combination enables the fungi to benefit from photosynthetic food. Worth noting since lichens cover about 6 % of the earth. These were growing a little uphill from the bluets, where it was a little rockier and dryer.
